Palladian Mirror was commissioned for 'Lives, Loves and Loss' by Traces London at The National Trusts Fenton House in Hampstead Heath. The bespoke mirror has a relief surface and comes in two parts to be display together or apart on a flat wall or on a corner.
The unique exhibition looked into the history of it's former residents. Briefed with creating a mirror for Mrs Gee's dressing room I had the fabric of the location for inspiration and a very carefully researched personality. Mrs Gee was a Quaker on the outside she would like to appear fairly plain, but behind closed doors she secretly loved the finer things, rich luxurious fabrics and clothing it was something she would keep quite hidden. Palladium pays homage to the portico's and columns of 18th Century Architecture and its influences while evoking the feeling of luxury and femininity. Throughout the piece you will see references to some of the main Georgian influences such as Greek and Roman Architecture, crowned by the scalloped shell of Aphrodite.
Commissioned by Traces London and The National Trust.
